I really would have liked the tandem of Gardiner-Schultz to develop as they were an awesome pairing in college.

Just for comparison. (For this 2011 -2012 season.)

Fowler is playing 25.5 mins a game and Gardiner is playing 18 mins a game. Some might say that Fowler should have more points then but I would say Gardiner would not be able to play at that level with more mins.

Gardiner is going to be good and it sucked to lose him. However, management must think Schultz will be just as good as Gardiner or better.
